Post by Oobles » was not available for over a day due to some DNS issues. For the curious. It was because of two reasons.

1. uses for secondary DNS. was the victom of a severe denial of service attack which brought down two of their servers.

2.'s primary DNS was assigned to I only just found out that the domain name management system that delegates had not allowed updating of IP address. was therefor pointing to an IP address which hasn't been valid for a number of years.

I have since delegated a working primary DNS.

I have also found someone who will be involved in a major upgrade of the server over the next month. This should resolve many of the flakey issues surrounding the server.

Thanks for putting up with the issues.
